About Us

small town raised

pursuing our passion - pups!

My name is Kaleigh and I am the breeder of Gilson Doodles!  I live in a small town in the south east corner of Utah with lots of open space and outdoor fun.  We live very close to Moab where you’ll see the iconic and stunning red rock and arches landscapes.  I am a mom of 5 beautiful kids and 3 sweet goldendoodles! 

I fell in love with the goldendoodle breed after adopting our first dog in 2015, Roxy.  Since I was a child, I have always had a passion for animals, especially dogs!  They have a way of calming our stress and making us smile!  I wanted to be a Vet when I grew up but soon realized that came with a lot more work than just loving up on animals.  I knew I wanted to breed and raise puppies when we got our first dog, but I didn’t know it would lead me to where I am today!  Turns out raising extraordinary puppies is my passion and joy!  I breed doodles because I love the “non-shedding” hypoallergenic coat, their sweet affectionate nature, and their smart dispositions.  My goal is to provide families with the BEST companion that brings true JOY into the home!  Gilson Doodles is honored to be a part of raising your new family member!

Our mission is focused on bringing high quality pups to good homes! Besides my three goldendoodles, Roxy, Penny & Izzy, we have many other parent dogs that are placed in our Guardian Home program. Our dogs are number one priority and are not treated as "breeding stock". Every dog has their own loving family. Each one of these families are apart of the Gilson Doodle family and my program wouldn't be possible without them! Our program is unique from other breeders because I choose to have our guardian families raise the puppies at their own homes. I personally feel this is the best way because the mama feels most comfortable in her own environment and with her people. Therefore she is less stressed and able to be a calmer and more attentive mama to her pups. I am extremely involved in the raising process with each and every litter. I train our guardians to raise the pups exactly as I would. I have developed a puppy curriculum that is a blend of the programs I have used and studied, including, Puppy Culture, Badass Breeder & Baxter & Bella. You can read more about our raising process on the puppy curriculum page. Gilson Goldendoodles is honored to be a part of raising your new family member!
